I am endeavoring to promote the history and legacy of Thaddeus Lowe who was a leader and innovator throughout his lifetime. It is my intention not to profit from the memory of Thaddeus Lowe but to allow for the free use of information so that current and future generations will appreciate his contributions to our great American society. Enjoy this great American's life story and feel free to use any information contained on this website.

Joseph Ferm Collection: Ida Gleim-Webster was the granddaughter of Thaddeus Lowe via Louise and was his personal secretary. These artifacts came from the office of Thaddeus Lowe. This collection was obtained by Pauline Gleim-Ferm from her sister Ida in the late 1940s and was given to Joseph Ferm her son. Lance Ferm obtained this collection from his father from 2003 through 2006 and donated it to the National Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institute in 2011.

These artifacts came from the home of Thaddeus Lowe and were given by Edna to her daughter Leonie Clair Wright-Read. This collection passed on to Anne Read-Warren, the great granddaughter of Thaddeus Lowe by her mother Leonie. This collection was obtained by Lance Ferm in 2013.
